Happy 3rd of July!

A day in pictures (with lots of words thrown in because I just can't help myself!)...

We left a little later than I expected... Jake slept till 8:30 and I woke up close to 9 listening to him talking in his crib.  So I woke up late.  We lost time from there.  I got ready, John loaded up, Jake had his bottle, I had to vacuume the living room (granola bars should not be eaten in the living room), then we finally got going.

We were trying to get to the lake in time for breakfast but that didn't work and we missed out on some biscuits and gravy.  And we left so late that we had to stop for gas and lunch.  I was resting my eyes and didn't see the exit John took, but once I heard him say "What is this", I looked and saw that he had taken the one exit (that I know about) where you have to drive for about 10 minutes to get to the town.

So we had a little detour.  Got gas and ate at 5 Guys.  It was really good!  There was also a little shop across the parking lot that John thought I would like, so he stayed with Jake while I went to look.  And he was right.  It was a cute purse boutique.  (I could have just said "store" but the prices were "boutiquey".)  And I wanted probably 90% of the stuff there.  I held firm and didn't buy a thing.  I may have drooled a little, but I kept my wallet safely inside my $10 Walmart purse.

We finally arrived at the lake, just in time for everyone to have lunch.  Katie was in her swimsuit from playing in the little pool.

She was sweet to share it with Jake.  Here's a pic of her with her hand over the sprinkler part of the pool.

Shortly after this picture Katie took her hand off of the sprinkler and it splashed in Jake's face.  But he didn't cry.  He didn't move either which was kind of funny, but at least it didn't upset him.

He liked the sprinkler too... he played in it while Katie was swimming in the lake.  Oh, and he had lots of fun throwing in rocks.  Daddy helped him clean them up and put them into the little watering can (the same one I couldn't find on Friday evening when I wanted to water my plants!  Mystery solved!)

Then it was time for Jake to investigate the fun time Katie was having in the lake... A quick look back and then full speed ahead!

Here's Daddy, Jake, Grandpa, and Katie in the lake...

Jake loved the water.  He settled into his little inner tube and hung on.

Here we are after a little clean up.

A quiet (for about 3 minutes) time for reading:

And finally...

Oh, and yes, I mean 3rd of July.  I didn't take many pics today (the 4th) but I'll post them sometime soon.  It's strange that yesterday felt more like a holiday than today did!
